Love You Longer | Gelli Print Card

Hello! We are back with more awesome inspiration this afternoon! The amazing Stempelfrida is here with a superb card with a great mix of stamps and a wonderful gelli print background…


It’s time for my Visible Wednesday for you!

Do you know that: Actually you wanted to do something completely different…. but then something great came out of it. I want to be honest with you: That’s how it was with my card from today.


gelli print - water soluble crayons - visible image stamps


On Instagram there is currently a challenge from Brigit Koopsen with Gelli Plates. I’m really not an expert on this and so I’ve done a lot of things completely wrong with this card. But that led to a nice result. It was day 4 of the challenge on water soluble crayons. These should be used in the Challenge with the Gelli Plate. On the one hand, I worked with too much water with the chalks, so that they rather flowed and then I also applied too much acrylic paint. But, lo and behold, that also gave a great pattern. And so I was very happy with my background, even if you can’t see the actual intention with the chalks anymore.






In the background I then stamped the hearts from the stamp set “Have I told you” and drew a bit with my Poscamarker. By the way, I have become a really big fan of the Poscamarkers. The white one doesn’t come close to the opacity of the Signomarker in my opinion, but it also fulfils its purpose and the colour variety with Posca pens is great. You may know that they are also available with very different tips.



The sentiment!!!!!!!! Isn’t it beautiful? I know exactly who thought of whom when SHE created it, but it certainly hits many of us directly in the heart. I stamped it with the Ink on 3 stamp pad.




I had made a card last month with three figures. I had written there that I had made four, but didn’t need one of them. Now it came into play as a main actor. You can read here (CLICK) how I made it.

The Future Is In Your Hands

Hello! We hope you’re having a great Friday and have some nice plans for the weekend! Pauline Butcher is here with some incredible inspiration for you today, featuring the awesome handprint stamps from our ‘In Your Hands’ stamp set…

Hello there, 

It’s Fabulous Friday and I hope you are all well.


You may know, that the owners of Visible Image (Helen and Mark), had their 3rd wedding Anniversary this week, this is the card I made for them, using some of their awesome stamps and stencils.

 


handprint stamps - anniversary card



The stamps I’ve used are:


In Your Hands


handprint stamps - visible image



Alphabetical


alphabet stamps



Scripted Streets


inky script stamp - street map stamp



and the stencils I’ve used are:


Collision




Stars & Stripes



I started the background using some Distress Ink re-inkers, Mustard Seed, Salty Ocean, and Picked Raspberry, putting a couple of drops onto my mat, one colour at a time, spritzing with a little water, then gently dipping the white card into it, until I had achieved the colours I wanted. I then stamped randomly with the Script stamp, using some Blue Versamark Clair ink, on top of this I placed the Collision Stencil, and randomly blended through it with a light layer of Salty Ocean Distress ink, then some Mustard Seed in other places.
 


  


Using just the Stars of the ‘Stars and Stripes’ Stencil, with a palette knife, I added some translucent embossing paste, adding stars to the whole of the background, when it was dry, I dabbed some silver holographic gilding flake, so it stuck in places.

On a separate piece of white card, I stamped the hands, one using a combination of Summertime and Charming Pink, and on the other a combination of Warm Breeze and Paradise ( all Versafine Clair Inks ) and fussy cut them, gluing them to some black card, and fussy cutting again. I stamped the sentiment with Black ink, and again fussy cut. I stamped the ‘Happy anniversary’ sentiment, using the incredibly useful ‘Alphabetical stamp set’.

To finish off, I adhered all the elements to the background using 3D glue gel, and added some eyelashes with a pen to the pink hand, and Glossy Accents to both eyes.


Many thanks for dropping in.


Hugs Pauline xxxx
